Stands for One Xmas Item a Month...which is hosted by Narelle...over here on the dedicated blog.
This month I added fabric to plain tea towels to jazz them up a little. They are really handy to have on hand so I can wrap them around some bickies or chockies as a gift.
I love being ready with gifts for Xmas.
THaNK YoU... to all my wonderful friends for sending their CoNgraTs on our new arrival.
And just to let everyone know... considering this area has been battered by a horrendous storm...
YES we are OK... actually we are safe & sound & still have power. My son & dil (with their new baby) are fine as well... they have power & haven't suffered any damage to their home or property. However our poor dd & sil have NO power and have substantial water damage in their new home. Baby Cooper is only 8 weeks old so dd and her little ones have spent the last few days here in the dry & warmth.
Mobile phone service is hit & miss around here too.
We are a few of the lucky ones... as some poor families have lost loved ones... or homes and possessions... but I really appreciate your concern.
The rain was sooo heavy at times & with winds gusts that shook our house... I thought the roof tiles would come off... & at one stage I looked out across the road & the rain actually blew sideways.
There are trees down everywhere... boats have been overturned & have washed up on the lakes edge in several locations... most suburbs have NO power... all schools have been closed for 2 days... & emergency services are working 24 hours a day. Fingers crossed that the weather gods will play nice and move this storm out to sea. I just wish I could save some water for the areas in this country that still need rain... as we've had our share AND theirs too. Take care xox
I'm happy to announce the WiNNer of FNwF for April.
I know it's later in the month than usual, but being away I had limited time on the net... but you know the old adage... better late than never... Mr Random... hubby picking a number between 1-47... chose No 20... Melanie...

I'm B-a-c-k... from a wonderful cruising holiday...
& it feels good to be home too... although I did LoVe the heat!
Before I left I managed to complete an item for... Christmas Thru The Year.
This monthly display of projects is hosted by Anthea from over here.
It's so nice making items throughout the year & then being organised with Xmas gifts come December. Thanks Anthea... for encouraging me each & every month.
This months project is a "pin cushion" which I coloured for a different look to Gail Pan's original design. The pattern is included in her book... Patchwork loves Embroidery.
I snapped pics with a light & a dark background... just for effect.
